Perl is a widespread language, which is used to build various web apps and CGI scripts. Many programmers consider it to be one of the most practical languages these days because it supports the use of modules - tiny parts of code with pre-defined subroutines which are used to perform a specific task. The modules will save you time and effort and they will contribute to the fast speed of your sites since you're able to add only one line of code to call a certain module instead of using all of the code for the task within your script. Perl is a universal programming language normally used for scripts, but it has been employed to create a wide range of popular pieces of web software too, for instance cPanel, BugZilla and Movable Type. It is also used on high-traffic websites such as IMDB, Craigslist, Ticketmaster and many others.

Perl Scripting in Shared Hosting

Since Perl is set up on our cloud website hosting platform, you're able to run Perl/CGI scripts with all of our shared hosting packages without any difficulties. You may also do this automatically by using a cron job if your plan has this feature. If not, you will be able to add cron jobs from the Upgrades area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. More than 3000 Perl modules can be accessed on our servers and you will be able to use any of them with your scripts. The entire list is available in the Control Panel and when you need to use any module, you only have to add the path to our module library within your script. In case third-party scripts which you would like to include in your website demand a specific module, for instance, you won't have to worry if they will function effectively or not. This way, you are able to make a dynamic Internet site and offer countless attributes to your targeted visitors.

Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you would like to include CGI scripts on your websites or any other Perl-based software for that matter, you won't encounter any sort of problems in the event that you use a semi-dedicated server account from our company. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you will be able to call each of them by adding the path that you can find in your Control Panel into the script that you use. Every time you download some application from a third-party site, for instance, you can rest assured that you'll be able to work with it regardless of the modules it needs to work. Provided that your .pl files have the proper UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you will be able to decide whether a certain script will be executed manually by a visitor doing something on your site, or automatically by setting up a cron job inside your account. When you use the latter option, your script can be executed every minute, hour or day according to your preference.
